Disney-Fox Merger: ‘Guardians’ Director James Gunn Welcomes ‘Old Friends’

Marvel Avengers X-Men James Gunn Disney Fox

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn reminded the world that he’s a fan just like the rest of us when sharing his enthusiastic reaction to the news of the deal between Disney and Twenty-First Century Fox.

Gunn took to Twitter to share the news of the announcement that was made official earlier today, as well as his overall thoughts on how he feels about the X-Men coming home.

You can check out Gunn’s tweet below!

In addition to being excited about the mainstream X-Men characters potentially teaming up with the Avengers on the big screen, Gunn also shared an image of a relatively fringe X-Force character named Doop. The character is seen in the image riding a motorcycle, accompanied by a tiger.  You can check out that tweet below!

Gunn has always had an affinity for including some of the lesser-known Marvel characters in his films. While it’s possible that he’s just having a bit of fun with the fans, you never know if Gunn is coming up with ways to incorporate a Dooop cameo into Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, similar to what he did with Howard the Duck in his previous two films.

What do you think of Gunn’s reaction to the Disney-Fox news? Are you now holding out hope for seeing Doop in the MCU? Let us know what you think in the comments section!

As always, stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for more news on the Disney-Fox deal as it becomes available.

7 Big Potential Changes For The Marvel Cinematic Universe After ‘Avengers 4’

Previous1 of 8

Marvel AvengersMarvel Studios President Kevin Feige has officially said he’s holding back on reveals about the Marvel Cinematic Universe until after Avengers 4. With Feige holding information close to the chest, it seems likely big changes are set to hit the MCU soon.

Now that the MCU is more than fifteen films strong, I expect new characters and dramatic team shakeups soon so fans stay invested. There are a lot of things I wish could happen to the MCU, but I’m only talking about things I consider a real possibility here. Yeah, I’d love for the X-Men and the Fantastic Four to join the MCU, but I don’t expect that anytime soon. At the moment, Captain America and Wolverine will probably never hit the trenches together, but just know that would be number 1 on my list if Fox and Disney had a better relationship.
